Story
Flynn is a very loyal and sweet fellow. He currently is fostered with other dogs and is dog friendly. He's a little bit on the shy side but in a short time he's your best buddy. He loves his foster dad and follows him all over. If you are looking for a new buddy or companion for a similar dog please inquire about him. We do not know about cats or kids as his foster home does not have any. Flynn is approximately 1yr.

Story
Hi everyone, I'm Billy!I came to MACS when my family moved away- this is my first time being inside for this long, I really love the blankets and all the toys!!The people are all so nice to me, but they say I have heartworm, and Pannus (READ TO THE END ABOUT PANNUS) in my eyes. They take good care of me, and I know they want me to go somewhere they say is even better- a home, with people who love me, and a warm snuggly place to sleep!Just thinking about it makes me so happy- I'm a wiggle butt, and I can't help but bark with excitement! Could the family for me be out there?Pannus in dogs or chronic superficial keratitis (CSK) is an eye condition that can cause permanent damage if not treated properly. It affects the cornea and conjunctiva of the eyes, resulting in cloudy vision, pain and even partial blindness. Fortunately, pannus can be managed successfully with medication.

Story
I have Burt Reynolds here up for adoption. Due to me having a busy schedule and currently in the process of moving I am no longer able to give him the time he deserves and needs. His birthday is October 17th, 2022. He’s a great, loving dog who only wants to be with me all the time. Never had once had an aggressive episode towards my sisters dog and others for that matter. I trust him around kids as well. No lash outs what so ever.

Story
Venus was rescued around 6 years old after spending a majority of her life in a cage in the basement. She took some time, around 1 months, to warm up to us but after that, she has been our baby. She was there at the birth of our son and has loved him as her own little brother. Venus was brought to us in the midst of the pandemic, so her experience with other dogs has been very limited. She did meet a husky that she had no issues with, and when a random Chihuahua ran up to her she did not react aggressively, more curious than anything. She is now a 10 year old teenager that loves pets and she loves running around the backyard so a nice size yard would be good for her. She is house broken and understands when there are limits to enter certain rooms. She received her last check up in October of 2023 and is free and clear. She would do well in a home where she can have lots of attention, snacks and love 💕 We are only asking $20 to cover the cost of the listing fee.

Story
King is very loving and he loves to be rubbed just about anywhere on his body. He will give you his paw if you ask a d he knows the commands of "no", "sit", and "stay". He wines and paces when he wants to go out. He has never used the bathroom inside my house. I've only had since April 2023. I've come to find out that I am allergic to dogs and cats. My allergies have gotten so bad that I had to have surgery. This is why I can't keep him. He is a very sweet dog.

Story
Hello! This handsome fellow is named Balto, he is approximately 3 years old. He is a high energy dog that needs a lot of attention, he has a big personality and loves pets. He is house trained and gets a long with anyone and anything. He does she’d a lot so keeping up on grooming is a need. Only reason I am re-homing is because I don’t have enough time to burn his energy.

Story
Stella is a young girl fresh out of puppy stage, smart, athletic, and goofy. She is crate trained and some obedience trained. I have come to realization I work to much and am not giving her the best life possible. Shes a beautiful girl who is naturally guarding of the house of strangers but extremely dog friendly. She might do extremely well in a multiple dog home. She’s very docile and doesn’t care about being dominant or not. I do also have three cats that she’s okay with but doesn’t always respect their boundaries but has never hurt any small animal or my small child. She doesn’t love care rides and gets motion sickness. I am asking a rehoming fee just to make sure she’s appropriately cared for by her new family. I’ll also add more pictures down the road.

Story
Suzie Q is a gorgeous shepherd / husky or kelpie (best guess) mix who just loves to be with people. She is good with other dogs as well. Cats and kids unknown. We are guessing she will be medium / large when full grown. She will be ready to go to her forever home after February 20th, she is current on vaccinations, preventions, spayed and chipped. Due to breed characters a physically fenced yard is required and breed experience preferred. She is very smart and food motivated and may make a great dog for agility, flyball or similar programs.Suzie Q is located in middle TN, but not to worry her transport is included in the adoption fee with Rescue Riders Transport to one of their delivery locations. We are happy to set up a virtual meet and greet with any approved application. Please contact us for more information or an adoption application.

Story
My name is Harper and I was found as a stray running the streets dragging my chain leash . I am spayed and up to date on vaccines . I did test positive for heartworms and have been treated. I am very happy in my crate and love to go for walks and car rides . If I’m really a good girl , I get my favorite - a puppichino! I like to fetch , chew on my toys , and chase squirrels. I have not caught one yet but one day I will . I adore my foster pups. They are like my little play toys . Puppy wrestling is a sport for me lol . I always win at tug- of - war. I am very affectionate and give the best hugs . I can be vocal like most shepherds. If you need help in your garden , I am the pup for you . I like getting my paws dirty . Please consider adopting me into your family. I am being fostered by Save A Stray Rescue in Alabama but they use the most animal-friendly transport on the road. Rescue Riders Pet Transport will bring me to a destination near you. Please adopt me!!
